Friday Revision Homework - Stitches 46 - 50

While recovering from my cold I watched a bit of the figure skating at the Olympic Games. In between the various athletes' performances, Sunbonnet Sue appeared and skid on the ice.

I'm glad Sue has that nice warm scarf on such a cold day. It really looks like it is knit.

She is super cute.

We certainly need a warm muffler these days - even inside the house! It is still Brrr!

Queeniepatch said...

I hope she can send you some relief from the heat wave you are having!

Shami Immanuel said...

Oh she is veryyyy cute. Good application of the stitches. The scarf is awesome.

Oh, Queenie! She's fabulous!!!!
You must have such patience!I love the effect of the two-sided insertion ..... it's so pretty! It looks a lovely snow coat!
And how are you, are you better now?
We are suffering here this week with horrible colds.
Hugs,
Barbara xx

Thank you! It is always a challenge to use the five stitches in a smart way. The Detached Up and Down Buttonholes Stitch seemed good for a 'knitted' scarf.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you Barbara,
The Two-sided Insertion Stitch pattern on the coat took a lot of time (and patience) do to, but it think it makes a nice filling pattern.
Yes, thanks I am getting better. I'm sorry to hear you have been ill, too. This year the 'bug' is a nasty one!

Linda Calverley said...

The two sided insertion stitch looks very effective.

Rachel said...

Oh, very well done. She's an absolute poppet, and you've made good use of the stitches to create the effects of the materials.

Pamela said...

How cute! This is so creative!

Isabelle said...

Wow Carin, your little Sunbonnet looks so cute !!! I like her !!
Have a lovely week-end,

Janie said...

I've been looking forward to this.
Beautiful skating rendition and use of stitches, making Sue the
star of the rink.
Nice work Queenie, glad you're feeling better.

I have loved each of your Sunbonnet Sue girls but this one take first prize in my eyes. You worked the Two-sided Insertion stitch around a curve so neatly. I'm happy you are feeling better and hope the cold weather ends soon.

Queeniepatch said...

That section took a long time and a bit of patience to do!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you, Rachel.
I think the Bayeux Stitch looks good on the gloves, and the Colonial Knots are great for the snow.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. It was fun to do this Sue while watching the Japanese figure skaters do their best in the OS!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. I hope Sue enjoyed dancing on the ice rink!

Queeniepatch said...

Thanks, Janie. I had fun making this while recovering from the cold.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you Maureen,
I have had fun making each Sunbonnet Sue in a different way. Here I wanted to use the traditional chubby little girl, playing at skating in her backyard while pretending she was one of the stars at the OS.

Annet said...

Such a pretty Sue, love the pattern on her coat!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you.
The coat took the most time, but I think it was worth it.

Renee said...

How adorable! I love seeing all of your creativity. Fantastic work!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. Sue is trying to be an OS figure skating star, ha, ha!
